Summary
Jean Rosenthal (1912-1969) was a stage lighting designer whose work included productions of the Martha Graham Dance Company, the Metropolitan Opera, the Dallas Civic Opera, the American Ballet Theatre, and Broadway shows such as A Funny Thing Happened on the Way to the Forum (1962) and I Do! I Do! (1966). She founded a theatrical supply business, Theatre Production Service, in 1940. The Jean Rosenthal professional files date from 1954 to 1970 (bulk 1961 to 1969). The collection contains business records; clippings about Rosenthal and productions she worked on; programs from her productions; articles by Rosenthal, including drafts with handwritten corrections; and resumes and promotional photographs of Rosenthal. Business records pertain to Rosenthal's work as a designer, especially for the Martha Graham Company; her work as a theater consultant; and the Theater Production Service. The business records contain documents such as contracts, expense reports, production schedules, job applications, and related correspondence. Martha Graham Dance Company files contain memoranda and reports from the company's board of directors, in addition to materials directly concerning Rosenthal's employment. The business records include a file on a lighting design class that Rosenthal taught at the Lester Polakov Studio of Stage Design. The collection also contains design documents for the Martha Graham Dance Company at the American Dance Festival in 1967, consisting of two light plots, a dimmer schedule, and a lighting instrument schedule.
